Marriage isn't easy because relationships aren't easy. That is just the way it is and people have to work hard in order to maintain a steady and healthy union.


But sometimes things don't work out even though people try really hard. Rudy and Judith Giuliani know that very well because the two announced that they were getting a divorce on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

The former mayor of New York City and the registered nurse married in 2003, but their 15-year-old marriage no longer had the same spark as before, as reported by Pop Culture.

The confirmation was made to Page Six. Rudy confessed that he felt sad that his marriage had ended, but he acknowledged that it was time to move on.


The 73-year-old claimed that he wanted the divorce process, which was initially filed by Judith, to be as amicable as possible, and asked people to respect the privacy of their children.

According to the source, both have children from previous marriages. Rudy had Andrew and Caroline with Donna Hanover, his second wife, and Judy, while married to her second husband, Bruce Nathan, gave birth to Whitney.

Judith, who is 63 years old, filed a contested divorce proceeding in the Manhattan Supreme court, which indicates that she is expected to put up a fight for the shared assets.


As reported by Pop Culture, Rudy is most famous for being the Mayor of New York City during the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. He tried to stay in office through an emergency extension following the tragedy but was ultimately succeeded by Micahel Bloomberg.

He has remained fairly active in the political world, supporting and endorsing several Republican campaigns. He even tried to run for president in 2008, but he was surpassed by John McCain.

Nowadays, Rudy works as an informal cybersecurity adviser for President Donald Trump, a man that he admires and has supported since the beginning of the 2016 elections.
